In a way it is quite comforting that I now know that I can still have a bit of fun and cake without ballooning. But still it's a bit of a slap wrist that it has gone up. Ah well. It's only half a pound. And as the woman who weighed me was quick to point out, "Well, you are wearing heavy trousers."
Last night was the first official Golders Green yarn swap. I thought I was being excessive dragging two huge carrier bags full up there (one of my colleagues asked me if I was moving as I left the office) but I was as nothing compared to some of the donations. I can't really put into words how much yarn there was, and some of it really good stuff too, and the pics are still on my camera so I'll leave that for another day. But my word. There Was A Lot. I'll share my modest haul (came back with about a third of the quantity I left with) when I get hold of the camera cable.
Just to finish off it always amazes me how just as I confirm the final numbers with the hostel more people jump up and book for SkipNorth. 3 definites last night, one maybe and a booking form in my inbox this morning. The more the merrier - but I do need bookings sooner rather than later! If anyone else fancies a weekend knitting, learning and shopping (mainly shopping!) from 7-9 March then click on the link above and book. It's £165 all in or £135 if you want to find our own B&B. The Yahoo discussion group is picking up speed as we've finalised the workshops. This year it is...
- Colour Theory
- Modular Knitting
- Dyeing in the Kitchen
(Or as Pooch put it "You're not cooking are you, because then it would be 'dying in the kitchen'.") Fnah fnah.
